King's St Alban's

3 December

Year 4 in full festive flow at the Worcester Victorian Christmas Market.

On Friday afternoon, a lively Year 4 cohort were in full festive flow as they sang their hearts out, entertaining the crowds at Worcester’s Victorian Christmas Fayre. Operated by Cotswold Markets, the event takes place in Cathedral Square, the High Street, Pump Street, Friar Street, Charles Street, New Street and the Cornmarket Car Park from Thursday, 2nd December through to Sunday, 5th December.

Dressed as festive elves as part of King’s St Alban’s Elf Day in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, pupils and teachers alike took to the main stage situated in Cathedral Square and wowed the stallholders and visitors with their super singing. Rehearsing over the last few weeks, the pupils have been working hard in their music lessons with Mrs Haggarty and Mrs Gunter to learn a wide variety of carols and Christmas songs, ranging from traditional favourites such as Away in a Manger and Zither Carol to the toe-tapping Jingle Bell Rock and the very appropriate Rock around the shops. They also introduced their audience to some more unusual items, such as Please don’t send me to bed and Christmas at School.

This was a really lovely occasion; the children and staff at King’s St Alban’s are delighted to see the return of the Christmas Fayre. A popular Fayre which hosts a vast array of stalls as well as presenting an outstanding programme of entertainment, we strongly recommend you pop along this weekend. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Victorian characters in Gin Lane, lofty entertainers on stilts, brilliant musicians, just like the Year 4 King’s St Alban’s choir, on the stages as well as buskers on every street corner.

In conclusion, the children all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it is safe to say that they are all definitely in the festive flow and the mood for Christmas now!!
